Amendment C214brim - Development Contributions Plan 2022

Amendment C214brim – Development Contributions Plan 2022

Amendment C214brim proposes to implement the draft Development Contributions Plan 2022 (draft DCP 2022). The draft DCP 2022 only applies to new residential development and if approved would:

  • collect about $7.8 million over 20 years
  • help fund 48 new community infrastructure projects.

Strategic work justifying the need, location and cost of these projects wasn't available when we wrote the Municipal Development Contributions Plan 2016, which was approved in January 2018 through Amendment C187brim.

Projects proposed to receive funds through the draft DCP 2022 came from the:

Key changes

  • Introduce new levies for new residential development by amending Schedule 2 of the Development Contributions Plan Overlay;
  • Make minor updates to relevant local policies; and
  • Include the DCP 2022 as an Incorporated Document in the Brimbank Planning Scheme.

The proposed new levy would apply in addition to the existing levy, which would remain in place. The proposed new levies range from $424 up to $799 (2022/23 financial year) per additional dwelling developed on a site.
